Physical Description: Tall,
thin frame with lots of remaining projection. Needs to add
strength, but has the frame to fill out as he matures. Athletic.
Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm
slot. High leg kick prior to delivery. Quick, compact delivery.
Short arm action.
Fastball: 93-95 mph.
Has topped out in the high-90s already. Pitch shows sink. Needs
to improve control.
Changeup: 85-87 mph.
Plays well given his arm action, which allows him to push it and
turn it over. Shows some feel already. Will already flash plus
Curveball: 80-82 mph. Work in
progress. Does not consistently snap it off. Has also thrown
what appears to be a slider in his early career, but it is
unclear if it is a separate pitch or occurs when he loses his
arm slot and gets more on the side of the curveball.
Notes: Participated in 2020 Fall Instructional league.
Was removed after walking two hitters on August 6, 2021 and did
not pitch for the rest of the 2021 season. Was included on the
roster for the 2021 Fall Instructional League, but it is unclear
how much he participated.
Very intriguing arm with impressive present velocity. His
development could take time, but the payoff could be
substantial. High-ceiling, low-floor arm. Has already shown
velocity and could add more. Has a projectable frame and a
workable delivery. Secondaries need development, but will show
some feel for both, especially his changeup. Command and control
also need development. Very competitive.
